No One Stays Masked For Long

The number one reason I never tried to run a completely anonymous blog: you always get nabbed, especially if you aren't up on the tech.

As LAT's Hiltzik just learned the hard way - there are too many net fingerprints that point back at you.

As with the Apple case below - this story brings up the tension inherent in blogging: is it journalism or not. Hiltzik is employed as a journalist and the guys paying his wage don't go for the anon-smear commenting. Elsewhere in the 'sphere, of course, the practice is practically de rigueur.

When worlds collide . . . .
